PRINT AND DIGITAL! Students love dystopian literature ... and ... it kind of feels like we're living in a dystopia today! So, let's bring those popular novels into our hybrid, in person, or distance learning with this book club resource.

This unit is perfect for literature circles, book clubs or whole-class instruction. Divide the book into four sections, and go! Group activities provided along with mini lessons and independent practice. Wrap up the genre study with a debate, essay, group discussion, or group activity.

Print and digital makes this so easy to use!
